Emma's makes the most of local produce and proteins and seasonable foods in its dishes and serves meals that are, for the most part, different from what you would find in other area restaurants. The food is good but, prices have gone up a bit too much for my liking. The place used to have one or two very good value monthly luncheon specials but that seems a thing of the past. I don't feel that the food is necessarily a good value anymore, especially the desserts which can be tiny. The prices, not the food, are the reason I have not returned in recent months.
